Rebirth of the Earth

Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

 

The mountains are awakening from their Winter slumber and Spring's greens are appearing early in the high elevation mountains. I normally don't see this occurring until late April. It's like the entire country is one month ahead of schedule this Spring, but the calendar says March.

 

Photo was taken this morning - had hopes of shooting waterfalls but the rain wouldn't let up.

 

3 brackets from a single raw (-2 | 0 | +2) merged and lightly tone mapped, no crop

 

I uploaded this photo also at 700px width (as I did with the previous post) and it really looks scrunched in the placeholder above - view it larger in the lightbox.

 

THANKS FOR VIEWING!
